The opposite works though. Tesla was allegedly quite succesfull at attracting

But yeah, unplugging the laptop as the thunderstorm was closing in might have
helped.

Also, as far as I know, high buildings usually have thunder-antenna's (? not
sure of the English word; though I just read that Benjamin Franklin invented
them) which are supposed to catch lightning for you and bring it to ground, so
that lower (parts of the) buildings in the surroundings are not as likely to
get caught.
I guess you could put one of these on your house, so that if you get lightning
in your house, it'll be more likely to go to there, rather than get into your
electricity net.
